26 rock songs to get you pumped in your subsequent exercise


Most mornings when I hit the gym, I end up putting on an eclectic mix of pop, dance, and high-energy remixes. It’s kind of funny, because in my everyday life, I mostly listen to something completely different: rock music. From an early age, I was raised on a regular diet of classic rock. (Much to my mother’s chagrin, my father slipped the contraband audio into my life while driving me to ballet class. If we timed it correctly, we could listen to « Get the Led Out » on the radio – 30 minutes entire series dedicated solely to Led Zeppelin’s Greatest Hits.) And I eventually moved on to grunge, punk, indie rock and beyond.

So if, like me, you often find yourself immersed in a sea of ​​synth and heavy bass while you practice, this week I invite you to go back to basics, because there is nothing quite like the powerful vocals and the screaming guitar solos of a rock song to motivate and energize you for the day ahead. That’s the idea behind this week’s playlist, which highlights a handful of rock favorites. As a huge rock fan, I could have easily made this playlist three times longer (and I can almost hear you now: « Why did you drop [fill in amazing rock songs here]??? »), but I tried to include a solid mix of classic, indie, grunge and garage tracks. I hope you’ll know a lot of these songs, even if you haven’t heard them in a while, and that there are still pieces that will be brand new.

That means you’ll find era-defining « Smells Like Teen Spirit » on this list, alongside classics like The Who’s « Baba O’Riley » and Led Zeppelin’s « Immigrant Song. » There’s a little punk on this list: The Clash’s « I Fought the Law » and « Do You Wanna Dance? » by Ramones, plus new songs from Wet Leg, All Time Low and Phoenix.

So crank up the volume, put on a ripped t-shirt if you have it, and get ready to have a blast.
